Epic games is awarding more small studios that use its game-creation tools.
The company has given out $75,000 to five European indie developers as part of its Unreal Dev Grants, which rewards groups that use the company’s Unreal Engine 4. Epic has so far awarded $1.4 million as part of the program.
The new recipients include:
- Everspace by Rockfish games, a single-player 3D space shooter with rogue-like elements, a non-linear storytelling, and virtual reality comparability.
- Jump Stars by Pixel Blimp, a game show-themed party game.
- Thundersteed Ltd., which creates Unreal Engine learning resources.
- The Siege and the Sandbox by Cardboard Sword, a stealth-based 2D platformer inspired by series like Metroid and Castlevania.
- Stellar Overload by Cubical Drift, a voxel-based role-playing game set in an open world.
